While still in the Marine Corps in North Carolina, Ray met and married Rosemarie Januleski from Erie PA. Upon his honorable discharge from the Marines Ray, Rosemarie and plus one, moved back to Erie PA and began to raise their family. Ray was looking for a place where he could make his own choices and raise a family his way. So, in 1959 they packed up all their belongings and now three children, with one more on the way, and moved to Miami Florida. Shortly after arriving in south Florida, they bought a house in Pembroke Pines Florida and had their fifth child. Ray worked hard to provide for his family. He worked for a lumber company, was a truck driver, and then found his work home at Burdines Department Store, as the Manager of Inventory and Housekeeping services at Burdines’ 163rd Street Store. One of his favorite quotes was “Don’t expect, inspect” attributed to his supervisor at Burdines.

He loved collegiate sports with the Miami Hurricanes football team being the team he rooted for.

Ray was a strict disciplinarian who demanded excellence from his children. Resulting in his children’s successful careers.

His daughter Pamela takes pride providing health care services in her community to this day.
